The Eyeshadow Tutorial Everyone With Blue Eyes Should Try
Blue eyes are striking on their own, but with the right eyeshadow, you can make them pop even more. Just make sure you have a neutral eyeshadow palette with bronze and orange shades, a brow pen to fake bushy brows and a great mascarahandy, because we’re sharing an easy and quick step-by-step tutorial on how to accentuate blue eyes with makeup below.

STEP 1: Prime Your Lids and Complexion

Prime your eyelids by applying a lightweight concealer, like the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer. The doe-foot applicator deposits just the right amount of product. Swipe the concealer wherever you have discoloration and blend with your pinky or ring finger. Then use a hydrating foundation, like the Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation, to smooth out your complexion.

STEP 2: Shape and Fill Your Brows

Accentuate your brows by filling in any bare areas and shaping them with the Maybelline New York Express Brow 2-in-1 Pencil and Powder. It’ll help create a bushy brow look and draw attention to your eye area.

STEP 3: Apply Your Eyeshadow Base Shade

Using a flat eyeshadow brush, apply a matte neutral base color from the lids to the brow bones, blending it up to the crease. We’re partial to Sweet, a pale brown from the Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette.

STEP 4: Buff on a Bronze Shade

Blend a rich, warm brown into your crease, just above the matte shade on your lids. Make sure to blend the shadow well so the color transition is seamless. We love Hive from the Naked Honey Palette.

STEP 5: Apply a Gold Shade to Your Lid

Using your eyeshadow brush, softly apply a gold eyeshadow shade on your lids. Make sure to blend it with the brown color in your crease.

STEP 6: Layer With Taupe Eyeshadow

For a seamless transition between your skin and your crease color, buff around the edges with a soft taupe color until you have a subtle, diffused look.

STEP 7: Highlight Your Inner Corners

Make the inner corners of your eyes glimmer with a pale, frosty shade, such as Flyby from the Naked Honey Palette (or your favorite highlighter!).

STEP 8: Give Your Lashes Some Volume

Curl your lashes and apply two coats of black mascara to your top lashes followed by one coat on the bottom. The lightweight, volumizing formula of the L'Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara is perfect for this.
